Bernie Sanders releases statement on Trump: ‘We will vigorously oppose’ his harmful policies
Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders released a statement on Wednesday night in response to Tuesday upsetting Presidential Election results.
As the world prepares for Republican nominee Donald Trump to take his seat as the 45th president of the United States, Democrats have spoken about how the party and the country will move forward.
Sanders said in a written statement:
Donald Trump tapped into the anger of a declining middle class that is sick and tired of establishment economics, establishment politics and the establishment media. People are tired of working longer hours for lower wages, of seeing decent paying jobs go to China and other low-wage countries, of billionaires not paying any federal income taxes and of not being able to afford a college education for their kids – all while the very rich become much richer.
To the degree that Mr. Trump is serious about pursuing policies that improve the lives of working families in this country, I and other progressives are prepared to work with him. To the degree that he pursues racist, sexist, xenophobic and anti-environment policies, we will vigorously oppose him.
